Authentic recreation of the 80s digital synth 09/09/17
The march of the Roland Boutique is seemingly unstoppable, Roland today announced the new D-05, essentially a D-50 in Boutique form - the LA synthesizer from 1987. Using what Roland call DCB (Digital Circuit Behavior Modelling), they say its a completely authentic recreation of the original. Though we hope the processor is a little more capable - some lag was present in the original D-50.
According to Sweetwater the Boutique D-005 will be priced at $349, availability "coming soon"
